Firefighters from several county townships responded on a reported structure fire about a mile west of Lawrence early Friday.

A deputy arrived on the scene, about three minutes after being dispatched, to report visible flames from the garage. The deputy found that all of the residents at the address had evacuated and were standing in the front yard. Residents told the deputy that there is a vehicle, ammunition, gunpowder and fireworks inside the garage.
